Belfort grateful for win

Vitor Belfort gave praise to a higher power following his win over Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 77 in Sao Paulo on Saturday.

The Brazilian knocked out Henderson with a kick to the head, earning the Performance of the Night and his 25th win, to go with 18 career knockouts.

"Legacy is not something that you leave for yourself," quipped the 38-year-old on mmajunkie.com.

"So for me, when I fight, I don’t try to think to beat records. I just do it because I love it; I've been doing it for 20 years. My inspiration and my motivation is beyond that. It's something personal, so I'm very thankful that god thanked me with god skills, and I evolved and I try to get better every day. It's simple."

Belfort made the headlines for the wrong reasons when he was forced to stop using testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) by the sports' officials. However, he made light of the banned treatment.

"I'm still using TRT," he joked. 

"You know the meaning? True revival touch. That's what I'm in right now. I want to thank god for giving me the strength and the ability to be who I am. I am who I am."
